What We Believe

The Bible tells us the gospel of Jesus Christ.

But what is the gospel?
It tells us how men, women and children can get right with their creator, God. What is wrong with human beings?

A Bad Record
We have a bad record: The Bible says, "...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." In order to be right with God we must live up to God's standards (summed up in the 10 commandments). Everyone knows from experience how far we fall short of loving God and our neighbour. We have broken his laws and are guilty before him. We deserve his eternal punishment.

A Bad Heart
We have a bad heart: The Bible says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" If we are really honest, each one of us knows that things like selfishness and pride affect our relationship with other people.

The Good News of the Gospel
We cannot deliver ourselves from our desperate condition But God has provided a way by which we can be rescued - this is good news!

The Bible says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Jesus Christ, God's Son, came into the world. He never sinned but lived a perfect life of obedience to God. He came to die on a cross. There He was punished in the place of anyone who believes in him. His death removes their guilt and gives them a right standing before God.

Such a wonderful gift from God cannot be earned.
We must come humbly to him, turning from our sin and trusting in Jesus Christ alone.
